Ban All Puppy and Kitten Mills in Iowa

Target: Kim Reynolds, Governor of Iowa

Goal: Ban continued operations of puppy and kitten mills in Iowa.

Puppy and kitten mills are still a booming business in the state of Iowa. Over 250 of these mills are in business, producing over 100,000 animal offspring every year to sell in pet stores–at the expense of the well-being of both the mother animals and the babies alike.

The animals are kept in absolutely deplorable conditions. Mothers are forced to birth litter after litter, as though they were an assembly line for a product rather than a living being bringing other living beings into the world. Most of the babies end up in shelters or worse, euthanized when they are unable to find homes. Innocent animals suffer and die so that these barbaric businesses can make a tidy profit.

The town of Fraser has already banned puppy mills, but a single town is not enough to end the cruelty of pet mills forever. Sign this petition to demand all of Iowa follow Fraser’s lead and shut down all puppy and kitten mills permanently.


Dear Governor Reynolds,

Your state is home to over 250 puppy and kitten mills. These facilities prize profit over all else, forcing animals to live in deplorable conditions and birth litter after litter. The babies are sold in pet stores, but most of them end up in shelters or are euthanized when they are unable to find permanent homes.

These mills are barbaric and should not even exist. They treat living creatures like objects, and mothers like machines on an assembly line who exist to produce more products to sell. These animals suffer horribly, and the mills do not care so long as they make money.

Recently, the town of Fraser banned all puppy and kitten mills, and now the rest of Iowa must follow Fraser’s lead. Put a stop to all pet mills in your state immediately. Demand their shutdown and ensure that all of the animals rescued from them will be safe.
